#MummyHacks: what to do if your sunscreen spray is slippery…

It seems like such a good idea when you’re standing in Boots – getting a sunscreen that comes in a spray, that is. Or, also for that matter moisturising dry oil spray, baby oil spray… the problem is the same: once you start spraying, your hands get oily and you can’t grip the bottle to keep going.

Cue all sorts of comedy angles as your bottle fires off haphazard spritzes and you try to position a body part in the firing line…

SM hack: the solution is really simple, put the bottle into a sock before you start, all the way up to the nozzle, which obviously you leave poking out… It gives you a decent grip to get on with the task!

#MummyHacks: what to do when your hands smell of poo…

OK, we have no shame – we’ve all been there, right? You’ve had to give your child a particularly ‘enthusiastic’ botty wipe and the offending brown (or green) matter ended up all over your hands. You’ve scrubbed with antibacterial soap, rubbed on some gel maybe… You can still smell it…

Fear not, here’s a great little #MummyHack:

SM writer shares: “to get rid of the poo smell just rub a slice of lemon over the offending area – super quick and it works on vomit odour or after chopping garlic and onions too …”

Just don’t use the lemon from your G&T… 😉
